I have lived in Amsterdam for 5 years and only heard vaguely about this place once. A foreign friend came to visit so I figured we could look for this place. And I'm glad we did. The restaurant offers a great viewing point. The drinks are a bit more expensive then in other cafes, but not as expensive as other... More

Lunched here for the second year in a row during a port call. We made it a priority to eat here after a wonderful lunch last time. The food is tasty, reasonable and served in generous portions. This year we split a sandwich and got a side so we weren't stuffed. The restaurant is on the third floor of a... More

This place offers an amazing view over the city and will make you seen Amsterdam in a very different way. Just for that, it is worth going. We went there for a late breakfast so cannot talk about the food quality (they only offer a few pastries at breakfast).

I've been to this cafe twice now and it is really fabulous. Not only is the food and drinks great but the view never gets old. I also feel like its hidden from the main drag as you don't often find a line to get in!

The only low carb salad was sold out, could only get a burger, which wasnt too bad without the buns! Love the view and the atmosphere, but wish the menu was more keto friendly

Thank you for your visit and review! I am sorry the salad was sold out. When it's not too busy we can also prepare something for you that's not on the regular menu with the ingredients we have. So please ask for that next time you visit us. More

Place is very nice, excellent food albeit a very limited menu and very good service. All in all a very good place to pop by if you are shopping in the area. It's a shame they close so early in the evening though

Read about this place on TA and when in the area popped in for a sandwich and tea. Nothing special, and view not as good as I expected.

This restaurant is nice, but apart from the view nothing special. We booked the table however no one greeted us to confirm our booking. The menu is very, very basic and quite overpriced. The views are just views of the city... If you do not know what you looking at, it looses it's charm. It would be nice for the... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
